Discover the most iconic buildings of Eindhoven

Eindhoven, a city synonymous with innovation and modernity, is also known for its impressive architecture. Several iconic buildings, designed by world-renowned architects, adorn the skyline of this vibrant city.

If you are a lover of architecture, Eindhoven is the perfect destination to explore. And what better base than the luxurious Pullman Eindhoven Cocagne? Located at Vestdijk 47, this premium hotel not only offers comfort and style, but is also the ideal starting point to admire the architectural delights of the city.

De Bijenkorf: a masterpiece by Gio Ponti

De Bijenkorf in Eindhoven is not only a department store, but also an architectural icon. Designed by the Italian architect Gio Ponti, this impressive building opened its doors in 1969. Ponti, known for his versatility and innovative designs, created a building with the Bijenkorf that is both functional and aesthetically impressive. The use of geometric patterns and mosaics on the facade gives the building a unique look that sets it apart from the rest.

The strategic location of the Bijenkorf in the city center makes it an unmissable visit for anyone who wants to admire the architectural splendor of Eindhoven. From Pullman Eindhoven Cocagne you are just a short walk away from this iconic building.

Evoluon: a futuristic monument

Another notable building in Eindhoven is the Evoluon, originally built as a science museum by Philips. The building, designed by Louis Kalff and Leo de Bever, opened in 1966 and is known for its futuristic design reminiscent of a flying saucer. The domed structure and the use of concrete and glass give the Evoluon a timeless appearance.

The Evoluon is now an events location, but its architectural value remains as great. The building symbolizes the innovative spirit of Eindhoven and is a must-see for architecture enthusiasts.

Van Abbemuseum: modernism in a cultural temple

The Van Abbemuseum is another architectural gem in Eindhoven. This museum for modern and contemporary art was designed by the Dutch architects Kropholler and Abel Cahen. The original building, completed in 1936, was later expanded with a modernist wing designed by Abel Cahen in 2003. This wing is known for its playful use of light and space, which contributes to the dynamic experience of the museum visit.

The Van Abbemuseum not only offers an impressive collection of works of art, but is also a wonderful example of how modern architecture can be seamlessly integrated with historical elements.

Witte Dame: from factory to cultural center

De Witte Dame (White lady) is an iconic building that reflects the transformation of Eindhoven. Originally built as a factory for Philips in the 1920s, the building was later transformed into a cultural center. The architects Dirk Roosenburg and Hugh Maaskant played a crucial role in the original design and renovation.

The clean lines and functional design of the Witte Dame make it a striking example of industrial architecture. Today, the building houses, among other things, the Design Academy Eindhoven and the public library, making it a lively cultural center.

Light tower: a cradle of innovation

The Light Tower, also a former Philips factory, is another iconic building that embodies the innovative spirit of Eindhoven. Designed by Dirk Roosenburg, the Light Tower was completed in 1921 and served as a production and testing site for incandescent lamps. The building got its name because of the characteristic illuminated tower, which became a symbol for the city.

Today, the Light Tower has been transformed into a multifunctional complex with apartments, offices and catering establishments. The renovation has retained the historic character of the building while giving it a modern twist, making it a fascinating destination for architecture enthusiasts.

Catharinakerk (Catherine Church): Gothic splendor in the heart of the city

For lovers of historical architecture, the Catherine Church offers a beautiful example of neo-Gothic architecture. This imposing church, designed by Pierre Cuypers and completed in 1867, is one of the most striking religious buildings in Eindhoven. With its two towers, each more than 70 meters high, and the beautiful stained glass windows, the Catherine Church is a real eye-catcher.

The church is not only a religious center, but also a cultural monument where concerts and events take place regularly. A visit to the Catharina Church offers a glimpse of Eindhoven’s rich history and architectural diversity.

Student Chapel of Eindhoven: a modernist oasis

The Student Chapel of Eindhoven, designed by the famous Dutch architect Louis Kooken in 1963, is another architectural highlight worth a visit.

Located on the campus of Eindhoven University of Technology, this modernist chapel is a serene place known for its simple, yet thoughtful design. The chapel combines sleek lines with natural elements, which contributes to an atmosphere of peace and contemplation.

High Tech Campus: the Silicon Valley of the Netherlands

Although not one specific building, the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven is a remarkable place that represents the city’s cutting-edge architecture and technological innovation. The campus is home to more than 140 companies and research institutes, and is designed with a focus on sustainability and collaboration.

Modern office buildings, research facilities and green spaces create an inspiring environment for innovation and development.
